Bellingham: "Captaining Dortmund against Chelsea is my biggest honor"

Jude Bellingham

said of his leadership experience:

"I think it comes quite naturally, but for me it's probably the biggest honour of my career so far, to captain this football club.

"I have brilliant role models like Marco [Reus] and Mats [Hummels], and I know how to carry myself when I see them. They carry themselves so well, so I take a lot of examples from that.

"I know that without the captain's armband I can still try and lead the team and this is a bit more for show, but we need to all be captains in the second leg. It's important that we all show up and we all get the job done."

However, Bellingham expects a tough challenge against the Blues in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge. He told

CBS Golazo


"It's a small win in comparison to the challenge that we've got facing us in a few weeks' time.

"We've got to go to Stamford Bridge and get another positive result.

"We can be really pleased with how we played and especially how we defended in the second half, but we need to understand it's not over, and they can definitely come back with a lot of power."
